About Me

I joined Duke Health as a facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist in August of 2016. My practice is concentrated on both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery of the head and neck. I have a strong passion in international humanitarian aid in the form of reconstructive surgery. I have traveled to Kenya, Bangladesh and Mexico to provide general medical and surgical care, with a particular focus on cleft lip and palate surgery. I am originally from North Carolina, but completed my residency training in Virginia and fellowship training in Oregon. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking and photography. I am deeply committed to providing excellent care, partnering with patients to apply surgical expertise that results in a natural appearance and improved quality of life.
